Source of design info. for flat belt rollers.

Hi There,

I've been recently assigned a project for a high precision belt based printing system. Problem is I have no belt system design experience. Can someone lead me to a good source (book?) on pulley design for flat belt systems. Also does anyone have a source for belt weave calculations. This system is very sensitive to belt weave.

Thanks in advance,

RE: Source of design info. for flat belt rollers.

You can do a search for belting using any of several search engines on the Internet.
Some quick references are as follows:


These are belting suppliers, and as such have extensive knowledge of rollers, and related applications.

Hope this is helpful!
